While announcement date rumours aren’t always that reliable, the spec sheets often are, especially as we get closer to (or past) those expected announcement dates. Sony Rumors just posted a new list of specs along with some photos they discovered through Weibo for the new Sony A7000, which will be announced either during CES next week, or later in January 2019.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Olympus when it comes to their higher end bodies. The last big announcement, really, was the OM-D E-M1 Mark II back at Photokina 2016. But now it looks like they have a new one on the way. The Olympus OM-D E-M1X. And the first photos of it have leaked via 43Rumors.
Nikon D760 rumours first started popping up around the time of Photokina 2016. We’d heard a few of them ourselves while at the show, along with early rumours of the D850. We were all a little disappointed when they only announced their now defunct KeyMission cameras. Then we heard nothing more until April when the D760 rumours started again. After that, radio silence once again.
Now, though, Nikon Rumors is hearing new word that the Nikon D750 is on its way, and that its replacement (presumably called the D760) will be announced at some point during the first half of 2019. They say we can also kiss goodbye to the Nikon D610.
A leaked data sheet for a new Sony IMX435 sensor, one of the two 8K Sony sensors mentioned a few days ago has come out. It appears to be the 36-megapixel one, potentially offering 8K video at 60fps and a strange super ultra wide 4K (3840×1080) at up to 480 frames per second. It’s suspected that this might be the sensor that will reside in the much anticipated Sony A7SIII.
Recently Canon Watch reported that Canon will be announcing two new EOS R models in 2019. It had also been suggested that at least one full frame DSLR model had been shelved in favour of a mirrorless option. It was speculated that this model might be the EOS 5DS/5DSR. Now, new word via Canon Rumors seems to back up this fact.[Read More…]
Given Canon’s previous commitment to pursuing DSLRs alongside their new full-frame EOS R mirrorless line, this proves to be quite interesting if true. Canon Rumors says they’ve been told that Canon has scrapped plans for at least one new DSLR in favour of a mirrorless alternative. Whether or not it’s true is another matter, but it would be a smart move.
It was three years ago, in 2015 when Canon released the EOS C300 Mark II. It came with some pretty significant advantages over the original EOS C300 cinema camera. But it’s time to start thinking about another refresh. And that’s exactly what Canon Rumors says is happening in 2019. But that C300 Mark III refresh may include the option of an 8K sensor.
When Canon announced the EOS R, many were disappointed. And it wasn’t just the single card slot, either. It was that Nikon had just announced a pair of bodies, with one being a high 45MP resolution, while Canon was only launching one.
Now, though, it seems that those high resolution prayers may be getting answered. And according to Canon Watch, that may happen as soon as next year’s Photokina in May – if not sooner.
It’s not much of a secret that Sony is planning to make some big waves in the world of APS-C mirrorless cameras now that their full frame lineup has become so accepted. While no manufacturer can ever make the perfect camera, they’ve proven their worth in that area.
While the A6300 and A6500 cameras don’t exactly suck, it looks like Sony knows they can offer a lot more. Sony Alpha Rumours is now reporting that a new “Mini A9” Sony APS-C camera will be coming before Christmas.
It looks like Panasonic isn’t the only company not giving up on their previous range of mirrorless cameras despite bringing a new one out. Despite the recent EOS R announcement, Canon Rumors reports that Canon is planning to release two new EOS M mirrorless cameras next year. And, no, I doubt any of them will be full frame.
